Two arrested with stolen property, burglary tools

Two individuals are behind bars after a Sheriff's deputy discovered they were in possession of stolen property and burglary tools.

Sheriff's deputy Andrew Brumfield questioned parolees Vanessa Paredez, 27, and Ivan Trujillo, 20, as they stood on the corner of Kalmia Street and North Main Avenue.

“From prior cases, Brumfield knew

to be on parole,” said Fallbrook Sheriff’s Substation Commander Phil Brust.

Upon searching the two, Brumfield discovered that Paredez was in possession of marijuana and a stolen credit card. Trujillo was found to be in possession of a stolen GPS device and tools commonly used to commit burglaries.

Brumfield recognized the GPS device from a report he'd taken earlier in which the victim reported it stolen, and took both Paredez and Trujillo into custody. They were processed at the Sheriff's substation and subsequently booked in the Vista Detention Facility.

Paredez was booked for possession of stolen property and possession of marijuana. Trujillo was booked for possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools, and is also being held for a violation of his probation. Both individuals' bail is set at $20,000.

Fallbrook detectives are following up on the stolen property and will be attempting to find the owners.

“This is just good police work from a proactive deputy,” said Brust. “I'm proud of the hard work he's done.”
